Complementation analysis of the aliphatic amidase genes of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

A plasmid, pCL34, capable of autonomous replication in Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been constructed which carries the promoter and structural gene (amiE) for P. aeruginosa amidase, but not the regulator gene (amiR). Plasmid pCL34 has been mobilized from E. coli to P. aeruginosa using the broad host range plasmid RP4. Complementation studies were performed in P. aeruginosa strains carrying various amidase mutations. Measurements of amidase activity in the recipients under inducing, non-inducing and repressing conditions showed trans-complementation by the chromosomally located regulator gene product. These results confirmed the positive control model for amidase gene expression. Levels of amidase expression seen during these studies were approximately threefold higher than in the parental, amidase-positive strains.[1]
